Do you want to make a real difference with your leadership? Are you looking for a dynamic and supportive work environment? 

We seek an experienced, qualified and registered supervisor to lead our teaching team.

We are a Christian organisation with a new purpose-built centre within walking distance to Manukau Westfield Mall. This position is also suitable for candidates who have held leadership responsibilities and are looking for that next level leadership role.

You will lead a team and be responsible for the education and care of a progressive roll of up to 130 children; we currently have a roll of 70 children. This role requires an equal amount of time on and off the floor. You will work in a well-established environment with a supportive management team. You must have proven leadership skills supervising the care and education of babies, toddlers and preschoolers. You will support our philosophy, which promotes positive outcomes for children – one child at a time, through education and play.

Our focus is to provide quality education and to create an environment where children can learn important life skills and values through stimulating and fun learning experiences.

To be considered for this position, you must:

  • Have a NZ recognised early childhood education qualification
  • Have current NZ teacher registration and certification
  • Live within a reasonable distance from the centre.

 The following is preferred:

  • Proven experience working with children of all ages up to 5 years
  • Proven experience in relationship management in dealing with parents and teachers
  • Experience in leading programme planning, self-review and assessment
  • Experience in HR processes such as teacher recruitment, appraisal, professional development and monitoring teacher performance
  • Ability and willingness to work in a multicultural environment
  • Passion for ECE teaching
  • Positive and effective communication skills in English
  • A patient, kind and nurturing manner.
